Here is Daffy Duck's debut. Circa 1937 and RT 8:48.
Porky Pig and his hound go duck hunting, and Daffy Duck adds to the typical sight gags.
No ducks were shot in the making of this short, however several other items were damaged by stray fire.

Yeah, he's a juggler, but more importantly, he's got a good show. The juggling is just a McGuffin he hangs his comedy on. Stick with it; at three minutes in of this six minute clip, you will laugh out loud.
Live, from Atlantic City, Hackett tells a joke that I saw him deliver with much more embellishment and an F Bomb or two in Las Vegas many years ago.
Either way, this is a damned funny joke... stay with this short (2:34) clip.

Foghorn Leghorn, shivering at the thought of another cold winter in his dilapidated roost, decides to court the well-to-do Miss Prissy, but Prissy won't marry him unless he can prove he'll be a good father to her son, a bespectacled egghead genius who, by scientific means, bests Foghorn in every game they play.
Circa 1954, RT 6:42.

A comprehensive interview with the iconic comedian George Carlin. He recounts his early career from childhood dreams of becoming an actor like Danny Kaye all the way up to his 1960's transformation into a leading voice of the counterculture and then he details the evolution of his writing and finding his true voice on stage in the 1990's. For Carlin fans (if you're not what's wrong with you and why are you watching this?) the final ten minutes is remarkably touching as he chokes up discussing plans he was forming to star in a one man Broadway show which never came to be and then reflects over his successful career and how wonderfully fulfilling his life has been.

Samantha Bee shared a brief moment of "escapism" with Jon Stewart on last Monday's Full Frontal.
After an episode dedicated to denouncing Donald Trump's White House staff, Bee shared warm wishes of peace and comfort for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, and closed her show with a video of Jon Stewart. In the clip, the former Daily Show host-who slammed the now President-elect several times during the election-soothes his feelings with a coloring book, a surprisingly popular adult pastime.
